Psychoanalytic Theory

We'll examine the major schools of thought within psychology through the lense of four contributors to the field:

  • Sigmund Freud
    • (1856-1939), an Austrian neurologist, now known as the father of psychoanalysis
  • Alfred Adler
    • (1870–1937), an Austrian medical doctor, psychotherapist, and founder of the school of individual psychology
  • Carl Jung
    • (1875–1961), a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist and founder of analytical psychology.
  • Erik Erikson
    • (1902-1994), a German-born American developmental psychologist and psychoanalyst known for his theory on psychosocial development of human beings.
